Rodgers Trade Impact On Jets Super Bowl Odds
Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the New York Jets received Rodgers, the No. 15 overall pick in the 2023 draft, and a conditional fifth-round selection. In return, the Green Bay Packers hauled in the No. 13 overall pick, plus a second and sixth-round selection, for Thursday night.
In regards to the 2024 draft, they reeled a second-round pick — with the potential to evolve into a first if Rodgers plays at least 65% of the snaps this season.
New York was priced +2500 when Super Bowl 58 odds were posted in mid-February at BetMGM Sportsbook. For context, they were initially tied with the Jets, Packers, Lions, and Jaguars for the ninth-shortest odds. Once Rodgers publicly stated that he intended on suiting up for Gang Green in 2023-24, they shifted to +1400. That adjustment materialized on March 9, trickling down from +1800 to +1600 in the process.
Within the current market, the Jets find themselves with the sixth-shortest odds. That number hasn’t budged since the deal was finalized. The defending champion Chiefs are the favorites to win it all (+650). Josh Allen and the Bills are next up at +850, followed by the Bengals, Eagles, and 49ers — all at +900.
Meanwhile, the Super Bowl odds for the Packers stood pat at +5000 following the move. More Jets futures odds are below. Unsurprisingly, the Jets makeup the most tickets wagered to win the Lombardi Trophy and AFC East, respectively, at BetMGM.
Jets Roster Analysis
Ironically, New York offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett will earn a crack at a big-name quarterback for a second straight season. He was named the Broncos’ head coach in Jan. 2022 — paired up with the oft-maligned Russell Wilson — before their struggles led to his firing ahead of Week 17.
Rodgers and Hackett will pair up with 2022 first-round pick Garrett Wilson, along with ex-Packers wideout Allen Lazard. The Jets also upgraded their offensive line via former 49ers left guard Laken Tomlinson.
Unfortunately, Hackett may be stuck in a similar situation. Last season, Rodgers tallied the 10th-fewest yards per attempt (YPA) among QBs with a qualified number of snaps. Hence, he’s at the tail end of his Hall of Fame career with below-average pass protection — even with Tomlinson in the fold.
On the other side of the ball, New York retained much of their personnel that surrendered the sixth-fewest EPA per play a campaign ago. They even added safety Jordan Whitehead (Buccaneers) and cornerback D.J. Reed (Seahawks).
